Pulling Back the Curtain: The Nutcracker

The Women’s Board of The Joffrey Ballet invites you to kick-off the holiday season with a virtual celebration of this beloved tradition!

Join us for a glimpse at The Nutcracker like never before with behind the scenes footage, interviews with Joffrey Company Artists and members of the Artistic team, and delightful surprises to celebrate the magic of this story.

With a program geared toward all ages and options to elevate your experience with at-home party packages, guests from age 2 to 92 can enjoy a memorable afternoon together. Though we may not be able to gather at the theater this year, it wouldn’t be the holiday season without The Nutcracker!

The Joffrey Ballet moves our art form and our city forward— and it is all made possible by philanthropic support. Proceeds from this event will go toward the Joffrey’s Crisis Stabilization Fund, a $12M initiative to provide for the continued health of the organization despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us in supporting this event as we raise necessary funding for the Joffrey’s programs and operations.

If you are unable to attend the live stream, a recording will be sent following the event to be enjoyed at your convenience!
